The City of St. Louis Red Light Camera Safety Program remains open and fully operational. That is the message from city counselor Patty Hageman.
Hageman says this week's court decision regarding the Ellisville program does not affect the City of St. Louis.
She advises that If you receive a red light camera ticket in the City of St. Louis, you need to pay it or contest it in court.
Unlike Ellisville, the City’s program allows vehicle owners to refute that they were driving at the time of the violation.
Hageman expects the state Supreme Court to eventually clarify procedures that cities must use for issuing citations.
Since the inception of red light safety cameras in the City of St. Louis, officials say violations at camera intersections have decreased by nearly two-thirds.
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Alexander Steen scored his league-leading 14th goal, Brian Elliott stopped 18 shots for his 100th career win and the St. Louis Blues beat the Calgary Flames 3-2 Thursday night.
The Blues have won five of six and are 6-1-1 at home. Calgary has lost four of five and eight of 11.
Maxim Lapierre and Vladimir Tarasenko also scored for St. Louis.
Elliott, who got the start in place of Jaroslav Halak, improved to 2-0-1 with his second straight strong performance. He stopped 31 shots in a 4-0 win at Florida on Nov. 1.
Steen has a point in a career-best nine games in a row. He has scored in all but two games this season.

Tarasenko broke an eight-game scoring drought with his fifth of the season on the power play at 3:01 of the opening period. He put home a rebound of a shot by Jay Bouwmeester.
Lapierre pushed the lead to 2-0 just over seven minutes later with his first goal as a member of the Blues.
The Flames, who were 0 for 6 on the power play, have failed in their last 28 man-advantage chances.
